When a person becomes president, regardless of their previous financial situation, they automatically have the opportunity to make millions once they leave office.
Whether it be by giving speeches, writing books, or getting hired on by eager companies, the prospects are endless.
Many times, ex-presidents use their prestige to start organizations that are mostly apolitical, designed to tackle specific issues like poverty or something along those lines.
When it comes to the Clinton’s they’ve, made hundreds of millions off of being “public servants,” never doing a day of real work in decades.
As reported at the American Lookout, the organization Bill and Hillary started once the rapist left office was the Clinton Foundation. It’s supposed to be a “charity,” but the reality is that it’s the Clinton’s personal slush fund.
According to its website, the mission statement is: “The Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) convened global and emerging leaders to create and implement solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.”
Essentially, it’s designed to get all sorts of CEOs, philanthropists, and other prominent folks to talk about “pressing” global issues, and then give the foundations tons of money to “alleviate” them.
But anyone with a room temperature IQ knows that the Clinton Foundation is nothing more than a slush fund, a pay-for-play scheme that has leveraged Bill and Hillary’s political positions and connections to do favors for donors.
While brainless leftists sing the praises of the “charity,” the reality is much, much different.
To the surprise of no thinking person, the Clinton Foundation isn’t much of a charity at all. CNBC has reported that in 2015, the Clinton’s made $10.6 million, and paid a federal tax rate of 34 percent.
Their released tax returns show that in 2015, they paid $3.6 million in taxes on adjusted gross income of $10.6 million.
To get a lower tax rate, the Clinton’s have conveniently been giving millions to their own charity and then deducting it.
What a clever racket. Not only can they lower their tax rate, they can just redirect that money through their charity back into their own pockets. But this is probably the least bad thing they use the foundation for.
While Secretary of State, Clinton would use her broad powers to help other nations and their leaders out, so long as they made a sizable donation to their charity.
During the election, some Republicans tried to bring this information to light, but the media was having none of it.
Rep. Blackburn (R-TN) said in the run-up to the DNC convention last year that he’d asked the FBI, IRS, and Federal Trade Commission to examine the dealings of the foundation.
“From the information we have been able to gather, it appears the Clinton Foundation is a ‘pay to play’ sham charity that needs to be investigated,” Blackburn said in a statement on Tuesday.
“The Clintons have used their Foundation to personally enrich themselves at the expense of American foreign policy. At a minimum, the Foundation’s tax-exempt status needs to be reviewed and revoked immediately,“ he added.
Strange how “public servants” have amassed a fortune worth over $200 million, and that’s just the known finances.
The mountains of evidence concerning their crimes and unethical behavior should be enough to put them in jail, or at the very least, disqualify them from any office.
But the Left is so dishonest and uncaring about integrity that they can’t let go of the dream of Hillary becoming the president. It’s pathetic really, that they’re so in the tank for her and her criminal syndicate of a family.
Thankfully, a miracle happened and she was defeated. Let’s just hope that America never has to suffer under the oppressive leadership of Madame Hillary in the future.
